It should just pull forward, make sure its not sitting hard on the floor all fridges should tilt back a little bit, some so the door will almost close by itself.

SOURCE: removing refridgerator grill

Look at the top slots in the grille. If there is a slight cutaway near the ends that is where the release tabs should be. If no release tabs, try a gentle lifting pressure in the grille as you try to pull away. They are made to be removed by the user. Check the manual if you can find it. If no luck, reply, I'll see if I can find one.

Good day,
The first step is to clean the coils properly. Remove the back cover, and make sure the cooling fan is running. At this point, unplug the machine and with a wand and a push pull vaccuum blow the dirt out of the coils from back to front.

Yes , it's filthy and ugly, but the only proper way yo clean it.
Make sure the cover in the back is properly reinstalled. (See my tips). At the beginning, the divider will be fairly hot, but should slowly cool after enough running time to get the machine to it's normal temperature.

Ice on bottom of freezer floor. Turned off fridge so it could completely thaw. Should I do anything else?


We have the same fridge, we just had the same problem, and followed the instructions found on this website. Probably a clogged drain pipe/tube.
After following these instructions, my husband found a chunk of debris in the tube along with a piece of plastic wire tie that was the probable cause of our issue - here is a copy of what we did last night. (The end of the tube has a little rubbery opening that drips into a pan at the base of the rear of the freezer - the beginning of the tube is behind the grill on the back wall of the freezer, have to put the wire through the grill and into the hole - we put the wire up from the bottom and down from the top to be sure to get the clog)
Remove all the drawers in the freezer - and stack them up.
With the unit switched off and unplugged, undo the fixings on the rear pannel in the freezer (behind the drawers)
Remove it to see the evaporator coils etc.
At the base there should be a channel - and a hole leading to the drain pipe. This needs unblocking wih a thin flexible cable. -net curtain support wire is ideal, and cheap. or use a short length of insulated cable.
Check it comes out at the rear of the unit onto the evaporator container - situated on top ofthe compressor.
Replace everything and switch on.

You should be able to remove the base grill by opening both doors to 90 degrees and pushing down while pulling outwards on the base grill to unlock the top clips, once the top is away roll the base grill toward you and up. From there you should be able to see the pan underneath which should slide out.

Clean it thoroughly and use a mixture of baking soda and water for final cleaning rinse and replace, I also mix some baking soda and water and pour in the bottom of the fridge to allow the mixture to cleanse the drip tube leading to the pan.

Installation is in reverse of removal

How do I change the water filter? I can't figure out how to get it out.


Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location

Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:

  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.

To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.

Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.

When you buy the new filter, it usually comes with an instruction sheet.

Where is the cabin air filter located in 1997 sable


The filter is in the engine compartment under the passenger cowl grille by the windshield. Instructions should be in the owners manual. However, you can also follow these steps:

Taking off the white grill to clean the inside (wipe dust off)


Remove the batteries, on the back.

You may remove the kerosene left over, by using your filling pump and transferring it, to the approved container, you use when buying Kerosene.

First, remove the wire handle. Pull gently outwards with the wire handle horizontally.

Second, lift one side of surrounding grill, until the top and bottom sides come off. Do the same on the opposite side.

Third, remove the top cover, by pulling upward.

fourth, unscrew the two side screws, located on the lower part of the cylindrical shape, that was surrounded by the wire grill, that was just removed.

Fifth, Remove the front know, by pullung outward.

Sixth, remove the cover and note that the balancing weight will come off. Very easy to reinstall.

Seventh, Remove four nuts, on the outer space of the wick and cover assembly.

Eight, Remove the wick by pulling downwards and nothing that there are two pins. When reassembling with new wicker, assure that the pins in the new wicker fit the hole openings, properly.

Installing follow the reverse of the above noted points. The whole work should not take more than 20 minutes.

Tools required are: flat screw driver, need nose pliers.

Be a little patient.

Call me at 610.217.8133 . Please note that I have the same model and have changed wicks, as per instructed by mfgr.. If you want a manual, I will send a copy. prepaid by all mayor credit cards, in the amount of $10.00.

Good luck.

1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter.
IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your
refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the
O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See “Water and Ice Dispensers.”
gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh
cleaning tools.
